I'm sure some people didn't like that but I've read that people were upset because they saw a stereotype of the angry black woman. For his part, the cartoonist said:

“When I watched the U.S. Open, I was sitting there like everybody else, and I saw the world No. 1 tennis player have a huge hissy fit and spit the dummy,” he said. “That’s what the cartoon is about, her poor behavior on the court. Nothing to do with gender or racism at all.”

I will be keeping an eye on the Australian Open in January.... in fact all of 2019 majors, just to see if SW can make the finals.
impo she has the power, speed is almost gone.... this is why sports is a young person thing.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

We'll see if Naomi Osaka is the real deal too. I think she is.
